Do you have any particular style of play [melee/ranged oriented, mixed/combined arms, offensive/defensive, etc.]. With not much time before GenCon, it's best to stay with a style your comfortable with. That being said, Koborlas can do any of them. Let us know and we can accomadate your style and what you have mini wise.

Koborlas don't necessarily have to be swarmed. I've run a list very similar to the following with great success:

 

Koborlas - 998 points

 

Troop 1

Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha w/Eye of the Ancestors, Ironhide

Corm, Ghostmane Shaman

Rageclaw Line Breaker

Rageclaw Warrior x 5

Warg x 4

 

Troop 2

Kainus, War Veteran w/Eye of the Ancestors

Rageclaw Line Breaker

Feral Hunter x 4

Warg x 3

 

That's 21 models, which isn't giving much at 1K unless you are facing a horde-style army. Pair the Wargs with the Hunters and Warriors, and Provoke keeps your big guys up and running longer. The longer they are around to use their multiple attacks, the more dangerous they are.

In playtesting I found the Pups and Wargs and warriors were the only way I could get near enough models to be competitive against swarms.

 

I use lists like this a lot.

Kashia, Ghostmane Mother

Ironhide x 2

Book of Tactics

Armor of Courage

Troop 1

Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha

Ironhide

Frostfang Hunter x 2

Rageclaw Sentry

 

Troop 2

One I tossed together. Takhi is there for the free move and dropping Ironhide on Vasyl. The Warg's are his bodyguards and the Linebreakers are there to shoot things that are coming his way.

 

Troop 1, 3 and 4 are pretty straight forward.

Overall a pretty good well balanced list. At first I questioned the wargs being in troop 2 instead of being included in one of the others, but then I started to see the trifecta of magic, ranged, and a rush attack finish which could work well if Tahki tosses the 3 snow balls.

 

One suggestion tho that I do have is that with the point sink that Vasyl is, I think I would probably lose the Spirit pup as much as I like it as a model. I would probably replace it with Luta. The idea here is that Luta fireball can help slow down enemies and allow you to focus on a few at a time keeping the advantage in your favor in physical combat. If you did that then you could either give Luta a familiar or add another Warg, more ironhide, book of tactics, etc..

Koborlas - 1000 points

 

Troop 1

Kainus, War Veteran - Ironhide

Ragon the Blooded x 2 - Ironhide x 2

Rageclaw Sentry x 2

Warg

 

Troop 2

Aislinn, Shadow Tracker

Ragon the Blooded x 2 - Ironhide x 2

Rageclaw Sentry x 2

Warg

-------------------------------------

2 troops +1 tactician +1 spy

12 models (40 DTs, 31 MAs)

 

This is list that is a huge hit or a huge miss depending on the enemy build. The biggest weakness is against magic. The biggest strength is a bunch of Tough/3 (tough/6 for the first rolls) along with a lot of hitting power behind them.

 

They have the speed to get into the enemy quick. Leap to target the more important targets first.

 

If the enemy has ranged, then try to use the Sentries high deflect to help get all models across the battlefield.

This list is entirely based around the Line Breakers hitting first, and then everything else cleaning up the pieces with 3 assassins and 3 first strikers.

With their high speed and DV, Linebreakers are more potent than people would think. With their large bases, they can auto-break contact with lesser sized models when they are in 1-1 situations. Or they can simply focus and shoot someone else while staying in btb using their unhindered. The whole, "I'll shoot yours if you shoot mine..." strategy. Just make sure to pack an armor of command so that you get the free action rally should you fail the shoot at your friend discipline check.

Good point about the armor of courage, hadn't thought of that. The previous list is also illegal; too many soldiers in Vasyl's troop.

I played the below Korborlas list last week, didn't go well for me. The list is based around Kashia keeping Ragon around so he can wallop on people and use her warlord ability to prevent any missed rolls. Well David brought Orba with the Assassin Blade, which saw Ragon going down without a fight. I did eventually take him out, but the list is based around Ragon so it was a very frustrating battle.

 

I killed Orba by attacking with Kashia, and Orba's defensive strikes hit except one, that rolled a one. David then used is last Scoundrels Luck stone to turn it into a 10. I rolled low enough that even when using all my remaining spell points I was 1 off of Toughing up. I now am just realizing that I had a luck stone. :grr:

 

The first stiking troop ran into a couple of solos from Looter's army (he just posted it in Overlords) with damage reduction 2. I did manage to kill them, but then Ashkrypt waltzed in and fireballed the crap out of anyone still alive.

 

Kashia

Familiar

Ragon

Ironhide

Linebreaker

Warrior x3

 

Kosumi

Linebreaker

Hunter x4

 

Luck Stone.

One thing I also remembered is your Iron hide tough check you got a 10.  And did you use your luck stone earlier?  I remember something but my wife and daughter were occupying me during a round of you and David going after one another.
